About Bernard & Lisa
Bernard and his family bought the local Liquor Barons and moved to Claremont. 28-years on, it’s 2020, and Bernard has been an active supporter of the Claremont community for nearly three decades. Aside from sponsoring local schools, P&C groups, and a local soccer club, he makes it his business to know his local customers and provide them with the highest level of customer service, and a friendly face
We asked Bernard what he’d offer us if we asked for a good Margaret River Cabernet: “Cape Mentelle, no question. We’ve been selling Cape Mentelle for as long as we’ve been open – we haven’t missed a vintage. The consecutive 1983 and 1984 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy wins (for the 82 and 83 vintages) cemented Margaret River as a premium cabernet region and the wines are just as good today, if not better. If you can afford to invest in the estate cabernet, it will stay alive in the cellar for decades. If you want something to drink sooner than that, the Wallcliffe cabernet blend offers fantastic value for money at $49, if this is still not up to your alley – the Trinders is great. Every. Single. Vintage.”
You can’t fault his taste in sports either – Bernard is partial to a spot of golf and a robust game of rugby. Noble pursuits.
